One can reach the upper town or ‘acropolis’ climbing up the narrow pathway that leads you to the summit from the main square. On the summit, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the fortress city below, surrounded by the sea. Positioned on the very edge of the cliff you will find the only building still left standing, the recently restored church of St. Sophia which was built in the 12th century A.D.
The main attraction of Monemvasia is undoubtedly the impressive rock with the legendary Castle Town. Nevertheless, there are many other attractions and points of interest in the area waiting to be discovered by curious travelers.
